    I saw your pics, thats why I was asking. I looked those up and those are more of a drag radial, NO?

    I cant seem to find a 315 thats a street tire. Except 2 Mich Pilots, and they were like 400 a tire and they looked like crap.

    NT-01 are far from drag tires... if they were, they wouldn't be on my car... i don't care about 1/4 mile.
    NT-01 is meant for cornering, while being a excellent street tire, while far from the best in wet... this tire works best on dry... because it becomes with almost no grooves quite fast.
    This tire replaces the 555RII, which had same compound as drag radial, but a construction for cornering... they improved cornering + traction on it... so far, i love it on the street.
    I still needed something that would stick and can take the abuse of 500+ rwhp, while not suffering from heat cycles.

    street tires tend to be way more expensive than R-compound tires, although the last longer, in the end, te r-compounds cost the same... you change more often, but are cheaper, but you also get better grip and more fun

    Oh OK. I thought they were a drag radial because of the real soft compound. Good info thanks. That is why I was asking. Thank you. How long have you had them on, and how many miles have you put on them?

    I looked them up and I am saving my pennies to buy them. All I need is two but it is still 600 something dollars. Thanks for the info.
